March 4 & 5: Days 4 and 5 – Work Continues and Poya

Posted in Sri Lanka on March 6, 2015

We continue to work on the site helping Podi with cement for the stone walls and filling the inside of the stage with fill to support the final top layer of cement. Kumi and her staff have been fabulous and we've enjoyed a couple of traditional Sri Lankan lunches on Navajeevana's breezy deck.





The 5th is Poya which is the monthly celebration of the full moon. It's a national holiday and Navajaveevana is strangely quiet as the children, mothers and staff have the day off. No rest for Podi and his crew - or for us, however!
